‘Feds Feed Families’ Ends for Summer
The 2021 Feds Feed Families Virtual Campaign has ended. This summer, NIH donated almost 175,000 pounds of food to our local communities to assist children, older adults, veterans and families who are in need. Across the federal workforce, more than 7 million pounds of food have been donated.
While the campaign is ending, the need, of course, continues. For those who want the opportunity to continue to assist, there are ways to give year-round to support those who face food insecurity:
• Find a food bank or pantry through the Ample Harvest website (https://ampleharvest.org/find-pantry/) or on your own. Give directly to that site and record your donations using the Feds Feed Families Record Donation Form (https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/10a5efa3de024beda91d4c61b0bc0a4f?portalUrl=https://usfs.maps.arcgis.com). You can record donations all year long.
• Make a Combined Federal Campaign “two-for-one” contribution. The CFC giving season takes place through Jan. 15, 2022. If you donate to a food bank or pantry through CFC, you can also record that donation on the Feds Feed Families Record Donation Form (https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/10a5efa3de024beda91d4c61b0bc0a4f?portalUrl=https://usfs.maps.arcgis.com).
